Lessons Learned from North American and Europe Recovered Paper (or Scrap) Regulations, Trade Policies, and Commodity Specifications

Government provides a nation with the organizational structure with the goal of optimizing productivity. Optimization requires carefully conserving the use of natural resources, maintaining a healthy labor force, and engaging with other economies to maintain a secure future. Regulatory policies are a tool to reach this goal but these tools have to be either be highly specialized or used skillfully to attain optimal outcomes for a nation.

China Containerboard Market Review and Outlook

The roller-coaster ride for containerboard prices in China since Q4 2016 has been the focus of the global paper industry.

The moves are largely cost-driven, but the supply/demand balance, which was shaken up by China’s supply-side reform and stricter enforcement of environmental regulations, has also played a key role.

What has happened to the trading of containerboard as domestic prices reached record highs in China?

How was the supply chain affected?
